The art of the tile

Lisboa


Tile took on a position as an element of national artistic expression in Portugal over the course of more than five centuries. One of the best and most original examples of this early style of tile is currently found in the Sintra National Palace, which was the residence of King Manuel I. The tile is today considered as one of the most original productions of Portuguese culture, offering a glimpse of not only the history but also the mind-set and the tastes of each era.
